Kafr Al-Sheikh Brotherhood Member Tortured By State Security Forces
 
Farid Shaban, a Muslim Brotherhood member from the district of Dessouk, Kafr El Sheikh, is currently tortured by the state security forces in the governorate.
 
Shaaban was detained last March, 24, one day before the referendum on the constitutional amendments. He was leaving work for him alone in Damanhur when he was attacked by 8 persons who dragged him by force to the State Security Police headquarters in Damanhur , governorate of El-Behera. He was showered there with kicks with the hands and fists and obscene. On the second day, he appeared before the prosecutor who charged him of belonging to an outlawed group and distributing leaflets that call for boycotting the referendum .
 
On the third day, the prosecution decided to release him. However, the state security rejected the release and sent him to the State Security Police in Kafr Al-Sheikh. Officer Khaled Dabash insulted him and threatened him with arresting his wife and beating her and shocking her with electricity.
 
On the following day, he was blindfolded and was obliged to stand up for long hours starting from 7.00AM amid threats that he will be sent to the State Security Service in Cairo to face and that he will face severe tortures that may lead to his death. He was detained in the state security headquarters in Kafr Al-Sheikh for 12 days .
 
On the thirteenth day in the morning, he was sent, blindfolded and handcuffed to the Nasr City State Security Police service. He was taken to an underground where he was interrogated. Before staring to answer any question he was beaten. When he told them that he knows nothing, he was stripped naked. An officer called Gaafar shocked him with electricity across his body specially his private parts. Swellings and inflammations developed in his body and he was kept naked until 4.00AM till he fainted out of fatigue and torture.
 
Torture sessions like this one were repeated for 16 days. When he faints due to the electric shocks, they send him to a toilet-sized solitary confinement cell which has a small place in which he was sleeping committing the prayers and eating. He is doing all this while he is handcuffed and blindfolded although the cell is already dark. Officer Gaafar always tells him that any coming to this place must admit what we want him to say even if he is kept here for a year in such a state.
N.B. Shaban is still detained and is still facing these tortures.
